#### Almgren's Big Regularity Paper

World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 189.00Fred Almgren exploited the excess method for proving regularity theorems in the calculus of variations. His techniques yielded Hölder continuous differentiability except for a small closed singular set. In the sixties and seventies Almgren refined and generalized his methods. Between 1974 and 1984 he wrote a 1,700-page proof that was his most... more...

#### Amazing Traces Of A Babylonian Origin In Greek Mathematics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 234.00A sequel to Unexpected Links Between Egyptian and Babylonian Mathematics (World Scientific, 2005), this book is based on the author’s intensive and ground breaking studies of the long history of Mesopotamian mathematics, from the late 4th to the late 1st millennium BC. It is argued in the book that several of the most famous Greek mathematicians... more...

#### Ancient Mathematics

Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 45.95The theorem of Pythagoras, Euclid's "Elements", Archimedes' method to find the volume of a sphere: all parts of the invaluable legacy of ancient mathematics. But ancient mathematics was also about counting and measuring, surveying land and attributing mystical significance to the number six. This volume offers the first accessible survey of the discipline... more...

#### Anfänge der Arithmetik im alten Orient und bei den Griechen

John Benjamins Publishing Company 1972; US$ 188.00Wie die hier vorgelegten Untersuchung zeigen möchte, bietet die Arithmetik aus Euklids Elementen besonders gute Chancen für einen Erfolg bei der Suche nach Spuren, die das Wissen der Völker des Alten Orients in der griechischen Mathematik hinterlassen hat. Dazu kommt, daß uns eine Reihe von Tontafeln aus dem Alten Orient eine erste Einsicht in gewisse... more...
